Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI)

For some patients who are considered to be too high risk for standard surgical aortic valve replacement, it is possible to insert a new aortic valve using a tube that is placed either through an artery in the groin (Trans-femoral) or through a small incision made under the left breast (Trans-apical). An interventional cardiologist and cardiac surgeon review these patients and arrange for several tests including an echocardiogram and CAT scan to determine if the procedure should be done. Additional consultations may also be obtained with a doctor specializing in the health of the elderly.
